If you ever wondered why an apple turns brown after you cut it or why iron rusts when exposed to the elements, you are questioning the damage and destructive effects of oxidants (free radicals) normally found in the environment. Oxidation causes similar harm to the cells of your body. When you breathe, digest food, exercise or just sleep, your body produces potentially harmful agents called, free radicals. The free-radical chain reactions in your body take place countless times each day. To make matters worse, emotional stress, ultraviolet light and toxic substances in air pollution and cigarette smoke also generate free radicals that can put your health at risk. Fortunately, nature offers the means to protect yourself against the hazards of oxidation by-products. You can call on powerful allies known as, antioxidants, that work in opposition to free radicals.
